2019 Excavations on Cinder Hill Field

This is our second year investigating our Medieval Iron working site in Holcombe Valley. In 2018 we discovered our well preserved bloomery furnace which carbon dating evidence suggests dates from the late Saxon period (877 - 996AD). What will the group uncover in 2019?
